Dark Skies

​The sun shining through the leaves
Wind rustling the green trees
Birds flitting through the eaves
Could anyone a better morning see

Walking through the park
Soft grass beneath my feet
Like a rainbow you appeared
Was this coincidence or us destined to meet

Ten and four months ago
Had I last seen your face
Oh how did I think to let you leave
Think someone could fill that space

Sitting in the little cafe
Your fingers curled around a cup of coffee
The sight of you turned me breathless
How I wished your radiant smile turn on me

I took a tentative step forward
Hoping for the times of old
Memories we had, dreams yet to be
On your little laugh, I was long sold

Like a thunderbolt he appeared
Leather jacket, fair and handsome
The love in your eyes at his sight
My patched up heart came undone

You leaned deep into his kiss
Put his arms tight around did he
Oh how my heart burned when you looked at him
Because that was how you used to look at me

Picked you up and walked away
The happy couple and the sunset
How I wished my light would fade
How I longed for the chimes of death

Because I can’t stand the haunting dreams
Promises that turned out to be lies
There was nothing for me to live for
You darkened the cheerful skies


Conquer The Distance

​There is still about 2 hours for Valentine’s Day. But this date, the 13th of Feb, is/was special to me.
This for all the couples in an LDR. May yours succeed where mine failed. And remember, as long as the two of you have faith, you will make it.

Do you recall that not long ago
The roads of passion we would wander
Naively carefree, childlike innocence
All we did was care for each other

Unbridled love shining in doleful eyes
Made in the dream clouds a palace
No one could hope to pull us apart
Only thing that mattered was us

But somehow, somewhere down the line
The walls of faith began to erode
Fear and doubt crash mercilessly on them
Your heart turned to ice, stone cold

The promises we made
All the dreams together we had
Or were they simply wisps
Words written on beach sand

Faded flowers in your hand
The best that I can do
Being so far away
I have no way of reaching you

The skies have darkened, turned grey
Not easy the facade of cheerful gloom
But my word as a gentleman
I will come and see you soon

I know things are hard now
I haven’t been the best boyfriend
Keep the dreams we made in mind
Together we can conquer the distance

Darling your lips stain red, that beautiful line
Oh sweet one, aren’t you heaven divine.
Come to my side, cute little darling
Such beautiful eyes, miniature starlings

Such luscious hair, like a streaming waterfall
How beautiful art thou, a pretty doll
Eyes they mesmerize, such deep depths
Expressing such emotion, love or contempt

Soft supple hands, they comfort
Wipe away tears, emotional support
Comfortable lap, easy to lie on
Sleep there easy, until the next dawn

The love for you, none may compare
I will take care of you forever, I swear
Be all mine, oh pretty woman
We shall forever be,  lovers under the sun

Don’t Cheat

A gap where once was
Now a huge, gaping void
On the grey matter sea
Love once buoyed

For months at a time
What you toiled
In a few moments
The sanctity you soiled

A few moments of
Of intense pleasure
Just for those moment
You threw away treasure

Now she has gone
Nothing will bring her back
All she wants now is
You on the torture rack

Let this be now
A warning not to abuse
Do not cheat on her
Her love you will lose
